    Suzy Lemoine, owner of Golden Bee Products was kind enough to ask for my input on designing their very first ventilated jacket.

    Her Dad, Phillip Lemoine, invented the very first ventilated "suit" in 1989. She has had many people over the years requesting she offer a jacket, I have been one of those people urging her to make a jacket, for at least three years now.

    Tickled pink I received a call from her as to my input and we put together a prototype that I have used on four different removals this past two weeks.

    The final product is just fantastic folks, but I'll let you be the judge.

    Here is a video showcasing the suit: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mLpchJ9bszg

    The jackets are selling for $169.00 and I believe this includes shipping. They also offer full suits.

    so that is you JP? except for the hat I would have never figured you for southern Louisiana.

    the jacket looks good. doesn't look as bulky as my ventilated jacket. I like the idea of the hive tool pocket (which is a small problem with my jacket).

    it is alway fun to place a face with a name.
